Jul  2, 2007  –  Are you an Agitator?

We're always looking for bright engineers to add to our already amazing engineering team - but we're specifically looking to fill two positions ASAP - Senior Software Engineers for our core engine development and quality engineering teams.

Those of you familiar with our product would know that we solve some very tough problems ... most of our products work on problems which are defined NP-hard and then solve them to a reasonable and usable level.
